It's been a while since I have written here. We have been working hard on our non-profit paperwork and updated our goals (see about us page). Our new products have been launched and we are in full swing to get ready for Endometriosis Awareness Month in March!!
There has been a Facebook event created to wear yellow on 3/1/2014. Please be sure to join and invite as many people as possible.
We have also decided that our proceeds will go to the Endo Warriors and that we will being our own fund to help patients pay for surgical excision with specialists.
Regarding the EFA donations:
To Whom It May Concern:
Over the past few months I had been in touch with the foundation about fund raising for the EFA. I have begun product sales and to date have roughly $150.00 to donate. However, due to the lack of support from the EFA regarding fundraising such as no answers regarding sharing our products on your Facebook page and the interview on television from Padma, I am withdrawing my support.
I cannot donate to an organization that a co-founder is unaware of the definition of a disease she suffers from, or the proper name of the organization. I was also offended, as were many of my supporters that she didn't have on anything yellow or a yellow ribbon, nor did she mention any of the upcoming events except the Blossom Ball that many patients cannot afford to attend.
In addition, I had emailed before the new year about the Facebook pictures and products being shared on the organizations page as 50% of the proceeds was going towards your foundation, I was told I would hear back after the New Year and got no other follow-up, as well as no "retweets" on twitter, even in tagged posts. I was also told that since my products are not "EFA" there is no space for them at the patient day on March 8th. I found this to be ridiculous as I was planning on giving the EFA 50% of the total proceeds.
I am truly sorry that this partnership did not work out as I was hoping that this would be an ongoing process between our organizations. I will be removing the EFA from the website, goals of Knock Out Endo, and will not put more proceeds towards the organization after 2/14/2014.
Thank you for your time,
Founder and CEO of Knock Out Endo
